Reviews for Double-Baked Mashed Potatoes
"I've made these for years but I used instant mashed potatoes since that's usually what I keep on hand anyway"
"Not dry like many twice baked potato dishes are. I left out the onions. It needed a little more flavor so I added a teaspoon of onion salt."
"Pretty good potato recipe. Next time I might try cooking the onions with the bacon like a previous reviewer did."
"That's supposed to be 5 star! Can't change it. Made this last night & it is yummy. Halved the recipe for the 2 of us, couldn't wait for company. Cooked the onion with the bacon. Also added a bit of green onion for colour. Will make again."
"Omg! My husband and boys gobbled this dish up and requested for more..yummy yummy."
"This is so good! This is my new favorite way to make these"
"These were fantastic! A great alternative to gravy. I used green onions for a milder onion flavor."
"I didn't peel my red potatoes, used garlic and onion powder, no onions. Also substituted McCormick Bac'n pieces instead of real bacon & Kraft 4 cheese shredded cheese instead of sharp. We loved it."
"I didn't peel the potatoes because of a time constraint and I think this was even better that way!! My husband said this is one of his favorite potato casseroles I've ever made! I had to agree...it was delicious!!!"
"This is a fantastic recipe if you love twice baked potatoes but hate trying to refill the shells. When I made the recipe, I sauteed the onion with real bacon bits before adding it to the potato mixture."
"This was incredible! I didn't add the onion either because some of my guest don't like them, but I did add onion powder and lots of garlic powder and more salt. I doubled the recipe and 6 adults I had here devoured it!! My husband is the quiet type and usually nods when I ask him if he liked something, this time he told me he LOVED it. Will be making it again on Monday!"
"Very good! I boiled the chopped onion with the potatoes since I didn't want to crunch into onion pieces. They mashed up nicely with the potatoes."
"Very good recipe..didn't put in the onions because of someone being alergic to them..but kept everything else the same. Everyone really enjoyed it."
"MY BEST FRIENDS MOM USE TO MAKE THESE ALL THE TIME BUT WITHOUT THE CHEESE WONDERFUL"
"I like to use french onion dip in place of sour cream and onion. It makes a much richer tasting dish and you don't have to worry about the onions getting done. My picky eaters don't like the pieces of onion and this gives me the flavor I want without the pieces they don't want. Thanks for another great recipe."
"these mashed potatoes were delicious, my husband raved about these potatoes and told me these were the best mashed potatoes I've made. I will be making these often"
"Made this recipe for a church dinner & everyone really enjoyed it. Read the comment about the onions not being done enough. I sometimes chop onion and add a tab of butter and microwave for a ahort period when recipe doesnt call for cooking the onions. This tends to cook midly & soften them up because my family prefers them more tender too."
"WOW - best potatoes I ever ate. I omitted onion and added garlic and parsley. I put slightly less cheese in mixture. I forgot bacon! but in future will put it on top with the cheese. It is amazing."
"But I would omit the onions; my family prefers onions to be cooked longer than they were in this recipe."
"I used already prepared mashed potatoes as I needed it to be done quickly. It was wonderful!!"
"I even use this as a main dish. With less sour cream it appeals to more in my family."
"Our family calls this recipe "Aunt Karen's Potatoes," because Aunt Karen always brought them to family functions. And we love them! Aunt Karen divorced the Uncle, so we don't see her too often, but we still have her potatoes! Sometimes when we are in a hurry, we use frozen shredded hash browns in place of the potatoes. They aren't as creamy, but very handy when you are in a hurry."
"I forgot to mention the Swiss cheese would replace the Cheddar."
"I've done variations of this for years as it's a great way to use up any leftover mashed potatoes. One of our favourite alternatives is to omit the onions and bacon and use garlic, parsley and Swiss cheese."
"I neglected to mention that we add 8 ounces cream cheese to the hot potatoes."
"Our family calls these "Party Potatoes." We have made them for years. It is the perfect way to "doctor" instant potatoes. I have made these for over 200 people using instant potatoes for catering or church events. They are always a success."
"We already make something like this, but we add roasted pablano peppers for a kick. Any mashed potatoes with sour cream added is tops with us!"
"Fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheese work great in this recipe. Bacon could also be reduced."
